Ask for a dream (2)

02 January 2019
‘Then he had another dream.’

If we’ve already fulfilled the dream God gave us, we need to get asking Him for another one. A bigger one. The Bible says, Joseph ‘had another dream.’ And the second was bigger than the first. In the first dream he saw sheaves of wheat on the ground bowing down to him, but in the second dream he saw stars in the heavens bowing down to him. We can ask God to lift our eyes and cause us to aim higher. But before God will give us another dream, He’ll watch to see what we do with the one He gave us to begin with. The Bible says: ‘Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin’ (Zechariah 4:10 NLT). Great endings usually start with humble beginnings. ‘God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time’ (1 Peter 5:5-6 NKJV). We may not think much of the first dream, or calling, God gives us. It might not appear like the world-changing purpose that we want. It might only be to help one person. But it’s still a God-given purpose. We need to be faithful in the smaller things before God will trust us with the bigger things. Luke 16:10 puts it like this: ‘If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won't be honest with greater responsibilities’ (NLT). So we need to make sure we view every dream from God with importance. After all, God can see the bigger picture. Who’s to say it’s not a vital task for the kingdom?

 

What Now?

What has God called you to do that you think is mundane and unimportant? Ask Him to show you the kingdom value it actually has.
